Value of AAA Membership

Are you like me and you have so many memberships to so many things, you forget the perks that go with said memberships? Check out AAA, and get much more from your membership than the peace of mind that it brings. Enjoy discounts for shopping, travel, entertainment and restaurants. We even saved 15% on our airport parking recently by showing our card!

My favorite use of the AAA discount is at the outlet malls, my favorite being the Carlsbad outlet mall. Just show your card at the information center (behind GAP) and they will give you a complimentary discount card to most stores/restaraunts in the mall. You must meet certain requirements to get the discount (like spending a certain amount), but they are reasonable.  For those of you that don't have AAA membership, you can still pick up one of these discount cards, but it will cost you $5.00. If you have a lot of shopping to do, this amount will quickly be made up for with your store discounts and is well worth it. The cards are good for months at a time, so if you don't get around to using it the day you get it, you can always bring it back the next time you shop.

My membership definitely pays for itself in perks, so check out the discounts and see if it would be worthwhile for you to join.
